If you guys follow me on Snapchat (my handle is Tashpantz if you don't) you will know that I love a good DIY. I am always doing little mini tutorials on there to show my followers how to make something or revamp something they already have so it's no surprise that when Dylon got in contact with me to do a DIY/upcycle project on my blog using their dyes; I jumped at the opportunity.
I thought it would be cool to do 3 separate DIYs using Dylon's machine dyes and hand wash dyes; two based around fashion and one based around homeware. For the first DIY in this series I will be playing around with one of my favourite items; denim. I thought I would show you guys how to upcycle an old denim jacket into your very own patch denim jacket which is quite trendy this autumn season. Let's get started!
I was so happy with the finish I got from Dylon's black velvet machine dye. As you can see from the pictures I got a nice even finish and there were no patchy or lighter areas. It looked like I had purchased the jacket in black! You seriously can't even tell that the colour is a result of a dye job.
What I also loved about using this machine dye is that the process was so easy, it wasn't messy and it didn't cause any damage to my washing machine.
After I was sure that the jacket was dry I proceeded to add the patches on to my jacket.
